Just when you thought we were done with close up shots, MORE CLOSE UP SHOTS!

BAWLMER COMICON


Holy crap, Baltimore Comic Con was totally awesome you guys!  Thank you to everyone who stopped by to say hello.  I always like meeting readers in person.  BCC is such a great show because it really is all about comics.  The organizers don't give a shit about your movie or television show (well, almost. The "Comic Book Men" were on site, but in general, BCC doesn't care about about other media).  They care about comics.

I was most gratified that Stan Sakai remembered who I was.  I performed on stage with him at Katsucon a few years back in a Super Art Fight where he soundly trounced me (WORTH IT). He's one of my biggest heroes and it's so nice to see that he's so down to earth and friendly.

Next year, the show is adding a third day.  I will do my best to be there.  All this year, I've been making a short list of cons that I really want to hit next year knowing that the baby is on the way. BCC is a top contender because it's so much fun!

Somehow, I got a table at SMALL PRESS SEXPO!  This is really last minute so of course I'm ill prepared.  And I'm gonna be late to the show since I had scheduled something in the morning since I didn't need to show up early to set up.  I'll have more deets on where exactly my thing will be.  AHHHHHH!!!!

It's a toss up between this show and ConnectiCon for my absolute favorite show.  It's so much fun.  There's such a great vibe there.  And this year it's even bigger!

GAH!!  So much to do!!!  Alright, enough freaking out.  Back to work!

I'm so excited!!!! School for Extraterrestrial Girls Volume 1: Girl on Fire is finally finished and ready for preorder!!! And if you click on that link, you can download and read the first chapter for free! If there's a limit to exclamation points, I'ma break that shit in this post!!!

Working with Jeremy on this book has been a true delight. There have been moments when I wanted to shout at Tara and moments when I just wanted to hug her as I was drawing pages. I've also learned a whole lot about what it takes to complete a long form project like this. Papercutz has been super supportive throughout the process and we couldn't have asked for a better team. I can't wait for everyone to get their hands on this book!!! I'll be sure to throw copies at everyone I see.

So now you can see what's taken me away from YP for so goddamn long. I'm taking a short break to finish up some projects that piled up during production, but I do intend to get back to some YP goodness. I probably won't be able to sustain a regular schedule since Book 2 is on the near horizon, but I plan on updating as I can.

If you would like to see a full preview of Book 1, I've posted the full colored book over at my Patreon in all its glory! I also post a weekly podcast over there with news and commentary on the art scene so if you're looking for things to occupy your brain for a few minutes, check it out!

Alright, that's it for now! I'll yell about all sorts of updates and such as they happen!

Hello YP Fam!

So clearly, I haven't been around the site much. I still answer the occasional comment that pops up, but I haven't posted anything proper in a good long while. I didn't want to sound like I'm making excuses, but I think maybe it's worth it to just let you know what's been going on.

Good stuff! But super busy!!

So me and my friend Jeremy Whitely have landed a three book deal for a property that we've been pitching for a while. And I'm in the thick of inking pages right now. I probably won't be done until end of this year, early next which is why I haven't had a chance to get back to YP in a while now.

I usually have a bajillion things going on all at once which should come as not small surprise. But I've dropped a lot of extra stuff (haven't even blogged in months) to concentrate on getting this first book done and I'm still running behind, even with 3am being a very familiar time of day for me.

I do plan on getting to YP once this first book is turned in. And hopefully, I'll be able to time manage much better for the next two volumes so I can have some breathing space.

So that's where I've been. I haven't given up on YP, I just haven't had time to do anything else but work on this first book. I'll be pimping the shit out of it when the publisher makes the official announcement to be sure. But until then, it's back to the grind for me!
